Cantonment Woman Tased After Leading Troopers On Highway 29 Chase

May 19, 2024

A chase on Highway 29 in Cantonment ended with a woman tased in the Lakes of Carrington neighborhood in Cantonment.

Sharvonta Nashia Alston, 34, was charged with felony battery on a law enforcement officer, felony fleeing and eluding, felony resisting with violence, and misdemeanor offenses of DUI and driving with a suspended license. She was also cited for an open container and unlawful speed.

A Florida Highway Patrol trooper noticed a four-door sedan traveling north on Highway 29, recklessly weaving in and out of traffic at a high rate of speed. Once the trooper activated his emergency equipment to initiate a traffic stop, the Nissan fled, continuing northbound on Highway 29, turned on Quintette Road and then Carrington Lakes Boulevard. She pulled into a parking space in the 8500 block of Carrington Lakes.

Alston was apprehended and placed under arrest. After she was arrested, troopers said she was able to move her handcuffs to the front and become combative.

FHP said Alston began to fight with a trooper on the ground and charged toward the trooper in an aggressive manner.

Knowing the suspect driver was willing to fight plus knowing the cuffs could be used as a weapon, the trooper was forced to deploy his Taser to gain compliance,” FHP Lt. Jason King said. “Once a second trooper arrived on scene and with the suspect driver being placed in the back of a patrol car, she became combative once again, at one point aggressively placing her hands around another trooper’s neck attempting to choke them.”

Once troopers gained control, Alston was medically cleared by Escambia County EMS before being transported to the Escambia County Jail.

Alston remained in the Escambia County Jail without bond due to a probation violation charge.

    @BGH2,Well stated!!!!! So glad you can speak this truth today!!!!! It was spot on!!!!!!!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Wow….her inability to not drive while intoxicated shows several things.Ons, she needs help with her problem because apparently she doesn’t have to WANT TO to stop this type of behavior. Two, she has no accountability in her life and refusal to stop when lights/sirens activated shows she will do whatever it takes to try and get away from her responsibilities as a law abiding citizen. I too have a praying mother and I, like this young lady, come from a very great family. Did that give me a free pass to do the bad things I did? Did those two factors allow me to commit the crimes I committed and make my actions instantly forgivable? NO!!!! No matter who your mother is/how hard she prayers or what the “make up” of a family has it’s solely on THE INDIVIDUAL who commits these crimes/does the stupid stuff. I will be the first to tell you that I WAS THAT MONSTER I created. I DID operate my vehicles under the influence and I TOO ran from the police, a few times, to evade capture and avoid taking responsibility for my actions. As far as she not getting sentenced due to how she looks/what she is or where she comes from is so far from the truth. Women go to prison/receive jail time just as much as their male counterparts. I’m thankful that I never caused any injuries/damage in my days of displaying my ignorance with my addictions just as I’m thankful this young lady didn’t in this latest arrest. I pray the Troopers weren’t injured by her inability to comply with their orders. I also pray for this young lady to FINALLY change her ways before she does injure/murder someone and get the help she needs. To her family, taking up for her/her actions is called ENABLING…open your eyes and see that this is a pattern that’s getting worse each time. When will this stop before it gets worse with far more horrifying consequences? When will y’all step in and see that SHE is the problem and get her help instead of making excuses!!! To her mother, KEEP PRAYING for your child please, I know that eventually it works but this young lady has to WANT to change and get out GODS way but she also needs to get out of her own way first…

    You can’t fix stupid!

    Thomas: if she is going to act like a monster then she is going to be called one and therefore she should be treated like one. She is constantly putting other people’s lives in danger. She should be locked up for a while. Maybe she would get her act together

    DUI & suspended license …..obvious she is known to Police ..if she had nothing to hide she wouldn’t have fled ……These people never learn

    Anyone who is brazen/moronic enough to refuse to cooperate with law enforcement….

    Will be judged accordingly…

    @Thomas Snowden, she might come from a nice family but she’s not so nice. Obviously there’s a huge disconnect between her mother praying and what she is doing. Prayer doesn’t fix this and the good family didn’t cause it. I can promise you if it wasn’t your family and she killed one of your relatives in a wreck you’d feel much different about this. I can promise you the officers would rather not chase and taser people. Had she simply stopped and taken accountability for her actions the outcome would have been much better. Bad on her part, very bad and now she needs to pay for it.

    @chris : you are so dead wrong if you think for one minute she ain’t going to jail !! What you are saying is a complete joke and that doesn’t get you brownie points in a court of law !! Do your homework why ? Because you don’t have a clue about what you are saying or thinking !!!

    All I can say is “friends don’t let friends drive drunk “.

  10. Thomas Snowden on May 19th, 2024 3:10 pm

    Don’t judge my cousin she is not a monster like y’all speaking on her. She comes from a good family with a praying mother

  11. Chris on May 19th, 2024 2:53 pm

    Y’all are sadly mistaken if you think she’s going to prison for this. If she were a man, maybe. However, it is few and far between for females to get sentenced to prison time. Especially if she looks presentable, speaks like she has some sense, and comes from a middle class family or better, which seems to be the case here. No, she’ll likely get some county time in addition to hefty fines, alcohol/drug counseling, anger management, community service, in addition to more probation.

    She will be out in no time doing the same thing

    Drinking and driving is not only purely ignorant, it’s extremely selfish. Throw her in jail until she figures that out or leave her in there so she’s no danger to us. Thank you LEO’S!

    SHe was just caught this time.. Bet good money she regularly drinks and drives. Putting everyone on the road and in her path in danger.

    PRISON then end. One to her her get rid of he addiction problem and the other to slap-her awake to the reality of the damages she could have caused other families

    The revolving door of the judicial system is in perfect operating order.

    And she is on probation for a DUI arrest in February 2023 where she pled no contest to DUI with property damage, resisting arrest without violence and refusing to submit to breath testing.

    And her probation would have been completed this month depending on when the paperwork for her violation was submitted and the reason why she allegedly violated her probation.
